Fingal’s Local Enterprise Office hosted the Fingal Enterprising Women Summer Network Event which was attended by 50 businesswomen this week at the Waterside Hotel in Donabate.  The entrepreneurs received a Customer Experience Masterclass and a Summer BBQ. The evening provided a great opportunity for the entrepreneurs, both existing and aspiring, to mix with other women in business.

The Fingal Enterprising Women Network supports female entrepreneurs by offering a networking platform where they can learn, meet like-minded people, explore commercial opportunities and grow a business.

Guest speaker at the BBQ was Leza Nulty, Customer Experience expert with Shopper Anonymous who delivered a masterclass on the fundamental considerations for Start Ups and SME’s to ensure that their CX Strategy is accurately meeting the needs and wants of their customers and forms the basis of their growth strategies.

Our Local Enterprise Office is always at hand to support you and your business and we will do our best to ensure that female entrepreneurship is alive and thriving in Fingal!”

This FEWN event is just the latest in a long line of successful events run by the network and I would encourage all existing or prospective female entrepreneurs to get involved.”
